It is Saturday night and thousands of people have descended on the Great Eccleston showground near Blackpool for the Final round of the British Tractor Pulling Association championships. Tractors running in various classes try to pull a sledge that changes weight as it progresses over a 100 metre course. Contestants travel from all over, especially Holland and Belgium, to take part.
The 0.95T Mini Modified class was running the Euro Cup Final and taking part was the Landy, a "tractor" from Holland powered by a helicopter turbine engine. A very spectacular run as darkness fell.
The winner of the Euro Cup was a visiting American team with their tractor "Original Rat Poison".
